Title: Expertise in Second Language Learning and Teaching
Edited By: Keith Johnson

Understanding what constitutes expertise in language learning and teaching
is important for theoretical reasons related to psycholinguistic, and
applied linguistic, enquiry. It also has many significant applications in
practice, particularly in relation to the training and practice of language
teachers and improvements in students' strategies of learning. In this
volume, methodologies for establishing what constitutes expert practice are
discussed and the contributions address the fields of listening, reading,
writing, speaking and communication strategies, looking at common
characteristics of the 'expert teacher' and the 'expert learner'.
